CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Unicycle

My friend Justin up in Vancouver brought this invention down for the Maker Faire a month or so ago. He custom made a frame and attached a CVT NuVinci hub to the unicycle. Awesome. Video of me riding it:

Plug Bug: Home J1772 EVSE Charging Station

I now have a J1772 EVSE Charging Station at home. My friend Ken Adelman gave me an old Avcon charger that he had saved from the dumpster. I bought a J1772 plug from and wired it up.

Rob’s Ride, 10th Anniversary

Over 10 years ago my friend Rob started a 20 mile unicycle ride throughout Santa Cruz. It starts down by the beach Boardwalk, rides up to UCSC campus, does some mild off road trails through Wilder park, and then finally ends with a nice cruise along “West Cliff” drive. Heck, it is even so popular that Ken made a website dedicated to it: Rob, and a group of my other uni-friends, do it nearly every Sunday. A month or so ago marked the 10th anniversary. So I rode with my Canon 5D and did some live-riding filming.
